We went to spend a couple of days kind of like a retreat of the city and landed in the perfect spot, Polignano A Mare is a lovely town and even though it was really cold at the time, that didn't stop us from wandering around the streets at all times of the day. Giovanni from B&B Grottone was an... More

We booked on the strength of other TripAdvisor reviews, but our room, number 1 on the first floor, did not live up to our expectations. It did not have a balcony or sea view and was very basic (but with a good bathroom and a decent shower). It was clean, and our host was pleasant and friendly. Breakfast was taken... More

Dear guest, unfortunately the room you booked does not have a balcony with sea view. In fact, in the description of the room there is no balcony. We believe that the price is adequate to the services we provide. It is not right to complain about services that are not listed at the time of booking. Best regards, Gianni Serio More

I spent an afternoon on the internet trying to find a B&B in Polignano which would meet my needs and those of an18 year old boy and 13 year old girl! B&B Grottone seemed to fit the bill so I telephoned the owner, Gianni, to check that it was within walking distance of the beach and the historic town centre... More

Amazing! Gianni goes more than above and beyond! Pointed us to all the best places! Loved the Festival. Ask him anything about the history of Polignano a Mare. The best restaurants, cafe's and people. One block in from the sea. Walk to everything! Beautiful! I can't imagine staying anywhere else. See you very soon. Doug, Dominic and I loved it... More

Chose this B&B after reading the reviews and was certainly not disappointed. The owner, Gianni, could not have been more helpful and gracious. The location is quiet and close to the old section of town, yet not TOO close. The location is a bit tricky to find but well worth the effort. Parking can be a bit difficult, like all... More

I suggest this place to you cause the owner was very kind, helpful with us, he gave us a map, suggested restorants and shops,and places to visit. The apartment was very nice, clean, warm and in a good area, near the sea. We could see the sea from our balcony. The bed was clean also, full of pillows and blankets... More

Planning a 3-night stay in Polignano, I knew I needed a place to stay that was functional, clean and quiet, yet "close to the action" -- and B&B Grottone exceeded my expectations! The one-bedroom apartment was the perfect size for me (and would be for a couple, too), and was not only clean but well-stocked with essentials and very tastefully... More

This is a very adequate b & b. It's clean and spacious. There's no lift and all accommodation is up stairs. Our room had no balcony and the view was another roof. However the manager/owner was a really nice guy and came across as very genuine. He recommended a restaurant and he was spot on.

A B%B in a beautiful coastal village. Conveniently located, clean, well equipped. If this was not enough, the owner Mr Gianni is extremely helpful, polite and attentive. Honestly, I would not know what more to ask. Tip: ask mr Gianni for help with dinners, since he has been very helpful with me and the result has been outstanding. This is... More
